Hello everyone, Jules here.

I have been reading through the posts from my group of friends on the forum, I want to chat but wanted to update you as to what has been happening to me the last few days.

You were all right with your advice, I should have gone to A&E as when I went for the bloods the GP sent me to hospital.

I don't remember all of it, but I know they were all lovely with me. I had a really good M.O.T many tests and they did the ECG and the EEG ? (the head scan one), lots bloods, x-rayed my spine (I broke it in the crash I think I told you) and one of my ankles.

I was asleep for about 24 hours I don't remember them putting the drip in. Disorientated.

I don't know and cant remember the technical medical words, but the head scan showed nothing so they cant confirm a fit, but there is a problem with low blood pressure and slow heart beat which I have been referred to 'FASS' ? its a place that straps you to tables and monitors blood and heart as the table turns. 'FASS' is within a Falls department of the local hospital here, the RVI hospital. I am going there on Tuesday.

They say I have been unconscious when i thought i had just fallen when i fell asleep. Because on one occasion i banged my head they were concerned i had a bleed on the brain, which is why they moved so quickly I suppose.

They said I will probably continue to suffer these and i just have to wait until i go to FASS. Unless its a different type of fit i have to then go straight to A&E. How Ren will tell the difference i don't Know !

Anyway, the appointment is only a day or two away.

Since i have been home I have had one turn, but Ren put me on the ground as soon as i started going down and after a few moments i was ok, just disorientated. Nothing since.

Sorry to have worried you all, but so so grateful you were there for me telling me what i should have listened to.

Most kind regards

A case of bad things happening for a reason ; warnings I suppose, and I'm so glad you heeded them.

Lets hope any MOT fails can be easily fixed so we can have our lovely friend Jules back & getting up to all the old mischief !

Poor Ren ; he must've had a pretty anxious time seeing you so incapacitated, but now fingers crossed for a swift diagnosis and treatment.

Take care m'love ................... all best wishes, Cat xx
